My new aero bike :twisted:

But seriously, i have never tried any aero bikes before so really looking forward to it.

Build might not be the most exciting but i will tweak from time to time.

Should be up and running by next week.

For now, here is a teaser.

R136a1 is brighter than the Sun (our local star), and given its size and the amount of energy associated with a star that large there is a strong possibility that tachyons (particles traveling faster than the speed of light) would be somewhat related. :D

That said, that's a damn bright frameset, is this a Project One order?
Looking forward to how you'll be finishing it off.

Don't mess up. :evil:

No, but seriously: don't mess up. We're all watching.
No pressure.

Looking forward to seeing how you finish it off.

Check out the orange Fizik bar tape and orange/black DMC shoes for color match if you go all out retina punch.

EDIT: DMC shoes not Giro....

Yup. M9 and P1 order.

The paintjob is stunning. I spent what seems like eternity playing with the P1 configurator and was all set for a more subtle scheme but decided last moment to try something ballsy. I generally prefer understated scheme's a little more but am glad i took the plunge on this.

Due to the M9's integrated nature, you don't actually have too much creativity when it comes to speccing everything up. A lot of the choices are made for you already.

Only thing i am tossing up is the wheelset choice. I am thinking bora one 50's atm but am considering a set of fernweg clinchers as well.

Here are some more pics.

Fernwegs would be a waste on that bike. Boras are the better choice. Personally I'd go with something handbuilt.

Purely in terms of looks wheels deeper than 50 mm tend to look nicer on the Madone 9 (or pretty much all other aero bikes). So something like Enve 6.7, Roval CLX 64, Zipp 404 or Ax-lightness P55 T etc.
